Can't overclock my 4670K (firsttimer)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.

I recently bought a 4670K and a H80i to go along with it, with the intention of overclocking.
And yesterday, I started trying to overclock it but it wouldn't let me change the clock speed or really, no value's at all.
I have a MSI Z87-G45 and a CX750M to go along with this. I took this snapshot of the bios hoping it would be of some sort of help. I can use the "OC Genie" to overclock it to 4.0GHz, but I can't manually change anything. I can change "[Auto]" but i can't change "Auto"

Hoping you guys have some answers.

I'm not an Intel owner, so I'm going to leave now.
I don't think you can change the MHz frequency for Intel.

Also: never use auto overclock modes, or any overclock software - always use BIOS. Good luck thumb.gif

With Intel processors I suggest you not change the base clock.

All you need to do is change the multiplier settings [Adjust CPU Ratio] from [Auto] to the setting you want. Increase it in increments of 1 and check for stability issues by running prime95 for a few minutes.

When it isn't stable with prime any longer increase the voltage in minimal increments until it's stable again (and as long as it doesn't overheat).

For values with the {} you can click on them to change for the others, click on or scroll to the value you want to change and use either the + or - key.

If that doesn't work, make sure you have installed the latest Intel ME driver.

I can't change the CPU ratio, it won't let me do change the value from auto because it hasn't got the [ ] around it.

Make sure OC Genie is off. You have to type values into the areas that don't have brackets. Click on the Auto and type the value in.

I was wondering though, i ran mine at 4.2GHZ at 1.17V on Prime95 for 30min (i know it's not long enough) but when i turn it up to 4.4GHz it won't boot.
does anyone know why, i have seen people running this cpu at 4.4GHz stable at 1.14V, so why can't i even boot at 1.17V ?

Switch off your pc and press the clear cmos button at the rear I/O.Then switch it back on, the values would be set back to default.If by some chance you have corrupted your bios, switch off the pc and change the bios from A(blue led) to B (green led) using the multi_bios switch button on the motherboard. SWITCH back your pc ON.
